Have An Opinion?
There's nothing biologically wrong with it, as they are typically better mates (considering additional years of child bearing capacity).The reason many people, older women specifically, have a problem with it is that they consider it "gaming the system." You're "suppose" to live your young adult life, learn things, then find someone your own age who had been through the same amount of stuff and settle down with them. If guys live, learn, then settle down with a fresh girl the older women are then left without possible marriage partners, and insulted by the guy showing a clear preference to the younger girls youth, innocence, beauty, etc. over their "experience/ maturity."Just think of how this situation is typically attacked (when it is universally practiced): (1) "what do you even have in common?" (2) "you're taking advantage of her..."The first is stupid, as you can have a lot in common with just about anybody (e. g. fitness, movies, etc.)The second alludes to you being at an unfair advantage over the other person, whereas an older woman would be on your level, and this dynamic seems oppressive. This could just as easily be the case with someone your own age or older, but it is used to shame you into not going for the more appealing (younger) girl.Now, I don't think that all guys should date girls who are 18, but as long as they're legal and free to enter/ leave the relationship this shouldn't be an issue.
I think men are perceived as exploiters when the age difference is too much because the power relations are unequal and the emotional investment is unequal making one more vulnerable than the other in the relationship. In the bible they say relationships should happen between two people with equal maturity levels and sexual experience levels.
Where does it say that?
Considering Joseph was considerably older than Mary.
I'll play the game with any aged woman. Whoever wants to play.If there are two women in the picture I go with the one who I think is more attractive. It doesn't matter what their age is, it matter who is more attractive to me.Typically, it is the younger, fitter one. Sorry
If she is toooo young then yah its not normal if she is normal young its call some people dont like it because young women tend to be a little wild and you need to get them in control so...
Do they get criticised over it? I personally prefer older guys, I’d never date a guy who’s younger than me
Just check if they're above 18 and u have all my blessings, young padawan.
We are only criticized for it online. In the real world people say they are happy for us. I wouldn't let people get to you, they are not worth thinking about.
You’re 23 so I’d assume it’s that younger women are minor girls right at this period of your life.
If a 23 year old is dating an 18 year old, I think it's fine
I think it's fine unless the age is visually noticeable. So I'm talking like maybe 15 to 20 years age difference or more.
Nothing unless you go below the legal age. Hell, one should never touch any chick over 26 .
Depends your age. If your 50 and want a 20 year old woman, it just looks creepy. A young woman who is in her prime shouldn't be with a dude that is over hill.
*over the hill
Anything legal sounds okay to me. In this world of LGBT, interracial, women marrying dogs, why the hell would it matter?
Huh, when did that happen?
